Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats (Paperback)

Review of Book

5.0 out of 5 stars Nourishing Traditions is a monument., March 26, 1998
By A Customer

Sally Fallon’s book is large in size and in its implications, valiantly sweeping away all the fog and ignorance that is endemic in the field of nutrition today. The book, focussing as it does on traditional (pre-modern) food selection and preparation, is revolutionary in all its common sense, prompting the reader to nod and say, “Yes, that’s really true.” It seems increasingly baffling to me that, amidst the daily deluge of ideas criss-crossing the landscape of the nutrition frontier, very few people acknowledge the contribution of 50,000 years of human history in the creation and maintenance of health. Well, Sally Fallon does. This book takes the reader to the highest ground yet. I particularly appreciated the excerpts from other books and journals, which are included liberally in sidebars throughout the book. It is a lot like reading several books in one, such is the cumulative scope of Nourishing Traditions. Of course, the recipes, all 700 of them, are fabulous. The book also has an excellent resource section to aid the reader in applying the principles laid out in the text. Finally, one comment on the book’s subtitle, “The Cookbook That Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats”: This book does not tip-toe around the issues. The introduction, besides revealing many frightening (and rarely realized) facts about the state of current nutrition, also issues a call to action for people to release themselves from the collective trance perpetuated through advertising, through the common rationale that “we eat pretty well already,” and even through many of the currently popular trends today, including veganism. Prepare to be educated. Prepare to do some weeding. This is a big, bright, shout-from-the-rooftops cookbook that should be required reading for anyone who has the slightest doubt about what they eat. And for those, more likely, who have no doubts.

Imagine everything you ever wanted to buy could be made cheaper and better in another country. All your food,clothing,car,house,cell phone, absolutely everything made in another country, better, and cheaper. Now imagine how you would pay for anything if everything was made in another country? This economic plan is called cutting off your nose to spite your face. Its the reason the USA is crumbling. How great is that?

Locally Grown Produce

Brian Dunning offers a skeptical look at locally grown produce with some valid points about the green agenda.

For me native living is a political statement. Independence, sovereign individual, knowing what goes into growing my food such as pesticides, herbicides and yes Agribusiness raised animals to my way of thinking are mistreated, tortured and needlessly brutalized.

A grass feed animal may cost more to raise just as an animals who does not get antibiotic injections may not artificially put on weight. It’s is very political for me. The Green Movement is utter horse shit. It’s like buying a Prius to look environmental and green for a better public image.

Those of us who grow our own food because you can’t live a sovereign life when the basics of life are provided to you by the Fascist Police State.

Again, I’ve posted this before, I’m not Amish. I use a computer and my wife has a cell phone. These are items we need to use International Production to accomplish. Even there though, we need to be in control. It’s the Global Fascist Police State that we’re objecting to, not just the means of production.

The ideal native living in of course to hunt and trap wild game year round. No farm, just daily living. This is hard to do when city dwellers invent politics to impose their will on others. Cattle, that is cows, are herd animals. Herd animals roam and migrate so that their shit has time to decompose and become harmless in the food supply. But farmers and ranchers fence in areas and claim they own the land as if anyone can own the planet earth.

Fences, permanent housing, and villages emerged. I myself grew up in this sick society and was never told how unnatural town city life was.  The earth should be free range, not a section of it, not a special path but the whole of the earth.

You think politicians, Corporate CEOs, Doctors, Lawyers and Preachers are sick, they are symptoms of a sick ill society that we have built. The extremely wealthy of course own thousands of acres to live on. They come into the city and mine you, farm raise you, then return to their ranch of thousands of acres of natural living without their organic gardens, fresh air, herbal remedies and free range animals of wholesome value.

While some may live in the city, rest assured they have access to plenty of get away time to such havens of nature. One of the great privileges of the good life is a mountain retreat high above the pollution and the electromagnetic frequencies imposed on modern day life.

I know plenty of well off families who get away to a Canadian retreat of a cabin in the forest on a lake. A place so remote a plane or helicopter takes you in and leaves you for a week or two. The cabin has been stocked for you as well as plenty of hunting and fishing with fresh water and fresh air.

What used to be regular life is now a luxury get away package.

So small game animals, a garden and a small downshifting homestead is as close as one will get to the rural life of native living. Small local farms are the best we can hope for as society matures and grows to realize that our current path is fatal.

My wife and I have bought some acreage in a place far away from civilization. It took a portion of our savings but we’re beginning to realize that society is too far along the path of technological destruction. We’ll continue to spread the native living news while maintaining our ‘head for the hills option’ to be used when the signs are perfectly clear time has run out. Definitely 2062 (plus or minus four years) is the dead line.

One day our neighbors will awake to find we have left for safer greener pastures.

Those who think they can buy guns to arm themselves against an organized group equipped with nuclear and scalar weapons are delusional. They know your location and can follow your every move and can immobilize you at any time. When you try to run in your vehicle its ignition system will deactivate. When you try to call your loved ones the cell towers will be off line. When you try to see the TV news the electricity will be turned off.

We have a date for leaving. Rest assured its long before most people realize their goose is cooked. We’ve studied with the best to recognize the signs, the systems and the learned the codes of the Construct.

Rest assured once everyone realizes they’re doomed it will be too late. You can’t wait for your family member or your friend or your neighbor to see the light, if you do, like the Jews in Natsi Germany you will wait too long.

We’ve been learning the skills needed for the survival mode. When it all comes down there won’t be any grocery stores or tv sports. Just friends, loved ones and neighbors who have been chipped dropping dead as the kill switch is pulled one section of the planet at a time. A slow process so not to scare even the dumbest of dumb and dumber.

Learning thriving survival today for a better tomorrow,

natural born sovereign individual

The ideal native living is the NO mad life. Become a nomad…

This is a beautiful video highlighting why we all need to support our local family farms over Corporate Agribusiness.

Special thanks for the heads up from Tommy UsuryFree Kennedy on facebook

Tommy UsuryFree Kennedy … a tiny bit of re-education about “small to medium-sized farms” and “factory farms” … But local, shop near home …
